To pay tribute to our great city, and our city’s basketball team, Mr. Brainwash created an enormous homage to both, right in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Featuring star player Kawhi Leonard over a classic Brainwashed background, the player is highlighted mid action amongst a playful splash of color.
For his first major Italian debut, Mr. Brainwash was featured in Deodato Gallery in Milan for a spring exhibition. Upon arriving in Italy, he conducted interviews, starred as a guest on Italian chef Allessandro Borghese’s cooking show, and celebrated with Italian singer Fedez. The solo show garnered attention across the city and lines stretched around the block to see the collection of his newest artworks.
In New York City, the Starrett-Lehigh skyrise became a multi-story installation show by Mr. Brainwash. Each room was a different exploration of theme and experience featuring never seen before artworks make specially for the occasion. The event was for charity to raise awareness for neck and throat cancer, as all proceeds were donated.
